How It Works

### What are Minutes per Mile?

Minutes per mile mean how many minutes it takes to travel a mile.

It is very different from most other measures of speed.

With most speeds like miles per hour, the higher the number, the faster you are going.

But this is not the case with minutes per mile!

• the larger the number of minutes per mile, the slower you are traveling (you are taking more time to travel a mile)
• the smaller the number of minutes per mile, the faster you are traveling (you are taking less time to travel a mile)

Example

Tyger travels at 4 minutes per mile. Captain travels at 3 minutes per mile.

Who is traveling faster?

Tyger takes 4 minutes to travel a mile, but Captain only takes 3 minutes to travel a mile, so Captain is traveling faster.

How to convert miles per hour to minutes per mile

To convert an amount from Miles per Hour to Minutes per Mile, you just need to divide 60 by the number of miles per hour.

In other words:

• Minutes per mile = 60 ÷ Miles per hour

This is because 60 miles per hour = 1 minute per mile.

### Worked Examples

1) Convert 12 miles per hour into minutes per mile.

To convert from mph into minutes per mile we need to divide 60 by the number of miles per hour.

60 ÷ 12 = 5

So 12 mph = 5 minutes per mile.

2) How many minutes per mile is 2 mph?

To convert from mph into minutes per mile we need to divide 60 by the number of miles per hour.

60 ÷ 2 = 30

So 2 miles per hour is the same as 30 minutes per mile.

3) Tyger runs at a speed of 8 miles per hour. How many minutes per mile will he average at this speed?

To convert from mph into minutes per mile we need to divide 60 by the number of miles per hour.

60 ÷ 8 = 7.5

So he would average 7.5 minutes per mile.

4) A racing car travels at a speed round a track of 145 miles per hour. How many minutes per mile would this be?

To convert from mph into minutes per mile we need to divide 60 by the number of miles per hour.

60 ÷ 145 = 0.41 (to 2dp)

So the car would be travelling at 0.41 minutes per mile to 2dp.
